Celine Dion "Feels Stronger Than Ever"! The R&B singer opened up about moving on two years after her husband, René Angélil died.

The songstress, 51, had an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, April 2.

When the show host, Deborah Roberts, asked her to give advice to others dealing with loss, she responded, "You cannot stop living. Go forward. Today is the first day of the beginning of [your] life."

Dion, who will be performing her second Las Vegas concert in June 2019, explained that she feels "so powerful and in charge and grounded and happy" as a single mom.

She explains that she feels strong because of the "strength" the late music producer gave her while they were in a relationship.

Dion added,

René me so much strength and power and positivity. I will never be a dad, but it’s like … I’m in a double job as a parent — I’m a ‘parents.’ I’m the big deal! And the kids are growing and I see them and I look at them and I’m like, ‘Wow, we’ve done a great job and I’m so proud.

Dion and Angélil first men she was just 12. The pair became married in 1994; she was 26 years old at the time. They shared three children; son René-Charles, 18, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 8, together.

The duo was living a happy married life for 21 years before the music producer passed away in January 2016. He was 73. As for the cause of death, he'd died after a long battle with throat cancer.

The Grammy-winning singer was rumored to be dating her backup dancer Pepe Muñoz. However, she denied having an affair with him in January of this year.

She told The Sun at the time,

Let’s not mix everything. … We’re friends, we’re best friends. Of course we hug and hold hands and go out, so people see that. I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out.
